Art belongs in our schools. And in our communities.

We’re here to support arts education in rural Dutchess County. Whether working with kids in the Art Nest, with teens in local schools, or with adults in workshops and visiting artist lectures, the goal is always the same: create a space where great things can happen.

It’s about art.
And it’s about community.

We’re of and for Wassaic, not just in it. Our artists-in-residence live right in town. We work out of refurbished historic buildings. And we keep most of our festivals and exhibitions free and open to the public. Wassaic is our home, and that informs everything we do.

This local work is our way of setting a national example for revitalizing rural areas. We believe that by supporting an international community of emerging artists, we support the economic development of our region.

Making it happen.

Meet our co-directors: Eve, Bowie, and Jeff. Since the festival that started it all in 2008, they’ve dedicated themselves — alongside our community, our staff, and our board of directors — to bringing up emerging artists, revitalizing Wassaic and the surrounding region through the arts, and creating a model for other rural communities. They live and raise their families in Wassaic. After hours, you can usually find them hanging out at The Lantern. Come say hello.
